Terra Plana Worn Again 2007
By Dan Parkinson
As with all things "green" these days, "eco-fashion" is a growing industry, and, as London Fashion week draws to a close, some of the very best designers in the field showed off their creations.
A succession of pouting models pound the catwalk as dance music thumps out from speakers above and quick-fire camera flashes light the room. So far, so London Fashion Week.
But while the parade of willowy women has plenty of glitz and glamour, this, they say, is a catwalk show with a conscience.
All the clothes on display have been recycled from an array of materials including car seats, bicycle inner tubes, and firemen's trousers.
